Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy--Future Classes

As is tradition, the future classes for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy were announced last Friday night at the SLIG closing banquet. However, in a break with tradition, classes were announced not only for the 2012 year, but also for 2013 and 2014. The SLIG team decided to do this so that:
  1. We could get a better jump on publicity,
  2. Students could plan for future courses,
  3. Potential instructors would know where to contact future course coordinators,
  4. The SLIG advisory committee would have the option of considering proposals for future courses with the time to go through a thorough vetting process.
So, we are very excited to announce the proposed courses for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy 2012:
  • American Research and Records: Focus on Families with Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FUGA

  2. Great marketing idea. Now that day job as Deputy Clerk is drawing to an end I'm taking my retirement funds and saving them for problem solving with Judy Hansen in 2012! Appreciate the heads up on programs...and coming back to UGA - my 1st genealogy organization that I ever joined. Caroline Wolfgramm Irwin of Saguache CO

  3. I don't see the class that I was hoping to take (Midwest Research by Kory Meyerink). Is it still going to be offered?
